5:30 pm-6:30 Cocktail Hour

7-9:30 Awards Dinner

2018 will be the 20th year for the Tourism Awards & Scholarship Dinner, the premier way the tourism community comes together to honor some of the exceptional standouts in hospitality and tourism and supports the students who are studying to join this dynamic field that employs more than 27,000 people in our area.

To date, the Tourism Leadership Council has awarded more than $80,000 in scholarships to students who are studying to pursue careers in tourism and hospitality. Scholarships have ranged from $500-$3,000, and have gone to students from Savannah Technical College, University of South Carolina-Beaufort, Ogeechee Technical College, Georgia Southern University, and other area universities.

The scholarships are funded through various fundraisers throughout the year, including raffle ticket sales at our monthly TLC Connection Luncheons, the TLC Golf Tournament, and through private donations. Donations to the scholarship fund are tax-deductible: contact us if you would like to make a contribution. 

This must-attend, black-tie optional event will be held on Thursday, February 22, 2018. Mark your calendars for the event!
